Column and View Permissions on SharePoint

By Palesa Sikwane

Recently I ran into a codeplex webpart that allows you to specificy column and view permissions for SharePoint 2010.

View permissions disable access to some views on a SharePoint Library or list, and the column permissions hide or set columns to ReadOnly for specified groups. Column permissions work on normal list views, where authenticated users will see columns. Column permissions also apply on the three default SharePoint aspx pages:

  • EditForm.aspx
  • NewForm.aspx
  • DisplayForm.aspx

This feature can be downloaded from Install instructions and a more in depth description is given on the site. Below is a screenshot where the view and the column permission for a list/library can be set up/configured

Hope this post helps someone out there. Enjoy
